3.43/5 rDev -7%
12 oz bottle, best by 3/2/14. Pours slightly hazy golden orange with a huge frothy white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is some sweet sugary fruit with piney resiny hops.
The flavor is sugary tropical fruit with a medium piney hop finish with decent bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a little watery.
Overall, a decent session IPA. The flavor is dominated by the sugary tropical fruit rather than the hops. It does have decent bitterness though. Like most session IPAs I've had, it's a little thin and watery. I love the idea of session IPAs, but haven't seen one that really succeeds yet.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a hazy golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Big three finger white head which slowly fades into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a lot of lacing.
Smell: An earthy and juicy hop forward aroma with good hints of citrus and grass. Earthy and floral hops with hints of grass. Citrus hop hints of orange, grapefruit, lemon, mango, and pineapple. Soft pale malt background with hints of grains, cracker, yeast, straw, and biscuit. A pretty solid hoppy aroma.
Taste: Like it smells, an juicy and earthy hop forward taste with nice notes of grass and citrus fruit. Earthy and floral hop presence with notes of grass and some slight pine. Citrus hop notes of grapefruit, orange peel, lemon, mango, and pineapple. Soft bready pale malt backing presence with notes of grains, biscuit, yeast, cracker, and straw. A pretty nice juicy taste.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy, crisp, and slightly oily. Pretty smooth.
Overall: A pretty solid take on a session IPA. Solid hop flavors with a nice light body.

Light gold beer, very clear, and medium sized quickly fading, sticky white head. Aroma is bright miscellaneous fruits, floral, and citrus. Quite pleasant, easy going, and fresh. Taste is extra clean and seemingly simple. Flavors are lemon, orange, lightly herby, flowery, evenly fruity, and faintly tea-like over a soft light sugar cookie (w/out the sugar) malt base. Simple, delicate arrangement of happy things with light bitterness. Mouthfeel is slick and smooth with light body. Very sessionable/extremely drinkable. Mission accomplished here. A very friendly amicable beer.

Clean amber in my pint glass. Little head or residual carbonation, but no points detracted as this is on tap, after all.
Nose is subtle. A little citrus and fruit. Not bad, but not standout, either.
Taste is pleasant and mild citrus. I get orange and grapefruit touches with a strong malt presence. Not bad but not one I'd return to.
I will, however, pick up a single bottle for comparison's sake.

I may have gotten a pumped up bottle...very foamy on the pour. The beer poured a hazy golden with big white head that is leaving a lace. The scent is fresh hops bordering more floral than pine or citrus. The taste is a good balance beer and very refreshing. The malt doesn't over power the beer allowing it to be slightly bitter with fresh hop zing. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with big carbonation. Overall a good beer...will try it again just to see if the carbonation was a fluke.
